This is one of my closest (and most beautiful) friends, Kim. I took these photos of her in May of 2006, and it was the first portrait shoot that I had done. They turned out fairly well, but being portrait photos, I decided that I ought to do some touchup work (not that she needed it). I additionally decided to de-saturate everything except her.
Yeah, so about four hours of background repainting and stuff on this one.
